Yeah, you read that right – the legendary masterminds behind “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Hotel California” have officially released their new tour dates for 2017! Following the passing of co-founder Glenn Frey (rest in peace) the band started to form a whole new calender for their tour. Frey’s son, Deacon, as well as country artist Vince Gill will also be included as part of the lineup. The short run will also feature Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit. It was Don Henley’s idea to include Frey’s son, and his inclusion will be a wonderful tribute to his father’s memory.
The tour is being dubbed as “An Evening with the Eagles,” which begins October 17 in Greensboro, N.C. The band then moves on to Atlanta, followed by dates in Louisville and Detroit. You’ll find the complete list of currently announced concerts at the end of the article.
Tickets are set to go on sale to the general public Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. (local time) through the Live Nation website. American Express account holders get an early shot through a pre-sale that began August 15 — also at 10a.m. local time — and runs through 10 p.m. August 18. VIP packages are also available for the shows – check out the band’s website here for all other ticketing information you might need.
The brand new dates follow a couple of successful showings at the inaugural Classic West and Classic East festivals in July, which were the band’s first performances since Frey’s unfortunate death in January 2016.
The Little Caesars Arena show will be their first appearance in Detroit in four years. So mark your calendars if you’re local, because who knows if they’ll ever stop in again?
